Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 23rd day of April, 2016.

It is cool overcast and calm at this moment here in Edmonton.

Forecast is for cooler temperatures over the next few days and RAIN.

We do need the moisture so very badly so I WISH it happens.

A nice steady rain for a couple of days will do wonders.

 

This past month or so has been filled with so many ups and downs.

More downs than ups for sure.

I am trying to wrap my head around and bring myself back to the positive place I usually reside.

But it is difficult.

It seems that tragedy happens in bulk form.

Not bad enough that something terrible happens to someone but does it have to happen more than once in  such a short time?

We hope …… We WISH ….. We Pray.

I know that when you are in that place and cannot bring yourself up into the light that sometimes the darkness takes over.

Now I am not saying that my life is ridden deep in misery because it is not.

I really have a good life …..

Sometimes I could throw the financial aspect of my life at the door if that was possible ….

Sometimes I feel as though I went through the wrong door…. and yet..

Sometimes I just feel drained …..

But mostly I am good.

I have wonderful family and great friends.

I have Mr. Alvin ….. one of the loves of my life.

So I am going to think good thoughts and breathe.

Bring myself to the light and know that things will again work out.

Darkness always brings opportunity for light.

I will stick to that thought ….

Oh life ……

Today I send good energy and love to my grand-puppy “Elton” and to two of my friends “I” and “S” …..

Heal them and make them well again.

Time for a nice hot shower to rid me of this “feeling” …..

Take care everyone.

Things will always get better ….

We have to go there …. we must.

 

I hope that your life is good.

Have a great day and surround yourself with love, joy and laughter.

Also take photos either with a camera, your phone or your EYES ….

Photos are good to have remind us of those joyous times.

Because sometimes it is hard to bring those thoughts without the images.

 

Special Hello to: my family and my friends ……

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 3rd day of July, 2014.

This moment shall not pass by my way again!

Isn’t that a fun/strange thought.

Just popped into my head.

So why not with that thought.

All to often we wish our lives away.

“Oh, I wish it were Friday.”

“Or, I wished it was lunchtime.”

“I wished I was on vacation.”

But if we take advantage of every single moment …… then you will always be right where you are to be ….

So on this slightly overcast morning …. by the way I am so grateful for the cool breeze last night ….. me and Alvin slept so comfortably with the window open.

I see the sun peeking through the clouds.

It is time to put the finishing touches on getting ready for work.

I hope that you have a safe, dry, warm, sunny, happy Thursday in this moment and on.

Happy Thursday.

Special Hello to: my fellow human beings.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 4th day of November, 2013.

How are you this beautiful Monday morning?

I am doing great.

Even with the time change.

Funny how yesterday morning I awoke with endless energy and way earlier than usual.

I was shovelling before 8:00 a.m.

Oh well, still energized feeling like it is a Monday morning.

Looking forward to that first cup of coffee.

The first one is always the best.

Isn’t that true about most things in life.

The first one always seems to be perfection.

I guess it is the anticipation.If you could have one just one WISH come true at this very moment, what would it be?Would you wish for: everlasting good health, extra money, perhaps a tropical vacation or WORLD PEACE?

Pretend it is your one wish time.

Visualize with all your heart and good energy – see yourself healthy, see yourself buying the items you need or want, see yourself laying on a beach by the ocean and envision everyone happy on the planet.

Makes you feel good right!

Well on that note time to finish getting ready for work.

Have a great Monday.

You Rock.

Special Hello to: my sister ….. love you sis… 🙂

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Are there days when you wish for excitement?

Perhaps a surprise vacation.

Are there days when you wish for that knock at the door?

And you open the door to find the “Prize Patrol” standing there with a big cheque and a huge bouquet of roses and balloons – ALL JUST FOR YOU!

Are there times when you know that something FANTASTIC, AMAZING, AWESOME, INCREDIBLE is about to happen, and you wonder WHEN for Pete’s sake?

Are there moments when you just ask GOD, your Angels, a higher power or just your inner YOU …. what the heck am I doing?

Where am I supposed to be now?

What am I supposed to be doing?

Why, why, why?

Now we are starting to sound like a small child …..

But often I wonder at the end of the day or early in the morning …… WHY?

I have so many things that I want to do with and in my life and I should be doing them ALL.

I was just reading one of my favourite Blogs ….. THE PIONEER WOMAN – REE DRUMMOND

Now there is one busy woman.

She has children, home schools them, has a husband, lives on a ranch, has this incredible (too die for blog), is a cookbook author and now she has written a children’s book.

I want to be her.  Minus the children, husband and living on a ranch – my life much mirrors hers.

Actually I would love to have the husband and live on a ranch but my baby making days are over (thank goodness).

Now I look forward to the Grandma stage.

So someone please tell me, how do I get from here to there?

I just need a small boost – just a little “break” ….. after all, doesn’t everyone?

Well, a few minutes ago, there was a knock at my door.

My neighbour was standing there (not the prize patrol).

Through a conversation a few minutes later with her finance a light came on….

It was just the small boost that I needed.

So here I go.

So whenever you find that you need a “little boost” or a “break” ……

You too, might have a knock at your door or perhaps you might overhear a conversation that leads you somewhere….

or see a sign on a truck driving by or just inspiration from somewhere out there.

So that is my today …. my thought for the day……

It will always come to you ….. if you are AWARE.

Have a great “Good Friday” to all those who celebrate and to everyone Happy FRIDAY.

I hope that the sun is shining wherever you are …… it is shining here and my heart is full.

Always, Carol

Flowers for Easter

Me & Alvin with Zavier looking on ... Miss Anela took the photo, she is four years old.

Thought for the day……

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun ……. oh rah …… da da da da …..

YAY….. Doing the happy dance.  The sky is clearing and the sun is shining.

I tell you …. other than LOVE – sunshine is the next best thing….

I feel like a million ….. actually ten million dollars.

Thank you for the sunshine……. I WISH THAT IT WOULD BE HERE FOR A LONG TIME !!!!

Thought for the day…….. sometimes just having the sun shine is enough……

Always, Carol
